Conditions look good for proper mixed climbing on Ben Lomond. Here is a 6 minute video I made about mixed climbing in Tasmania. For all those dudes who got shit weather in Victoria check this out:

Sure makes Canada, the US and Europe look like a pile. I am surprised that they dont move the Ouray ice festival to Tassie for all of the brilliant winter ice formations.

OK Dr Sarcasm. How much ice climbing is happening now in Ouray, Lake Louis, etc.? None. You do realize those places are in a different hemisphere?

I am putting this out there because a lot of people complained about no ice season at blue lake. People can go mixed climbing NOW in Tassie and apparently it is way better than anything in Victoria.

Brilliant that johny, really enjoyed it.
Why not send it to UKC where loads of folk up there can enjoy it too.
PM me if you want their details.
Cheers,
AP.

The climbing looks pretty bloody good really. Plus the home-grown Tassie death metal (on theme no less) scores extra points.

Looks cool! I've often wondered about making a winter trip over to Tassie to relive my Scottish winter climbing days. I might have to check it out next year.

That was awesome, thanks. Also good to know I've been pronouncing it wrong for years, and that it's 'Low-mond', not 'Lom-mond'.
